Icing conditions have always presented a hazard to aircraft operations. For
example, vibration caused by a very small amount of ice unevenly distributed on the
delicately balanced rotor blades can place dangerous stress on the rotor system and
transmission. Therefore it is essential for an aviator to know the weather factors which
can produce structural icing and how to combat icing hazards.
This text is designed to acquaint you with the pertinent facts about structural
icing, how ice forms and what you, the aviator can do to lessen the hazards of icing.
